The website design is completely different from the previous site design - here is the home page (two screens, some overlap):
There is a row at the top right for "Login" "Join" "Free Registration" "Visit NEHGS" and "Text Size." Under the logo is a menu for "NEHGS News" "Explore" "Connect" and "Store." Each menu link has a dropdown menu for different features within that category.
The top of the Explore page says:
* Massachusetts Vital Records to 1850
* Massachusetts Births and Marriages 1911-1915
* The Register
* The American Genealogist
* Social Security Death Index
* Cemetery Transcriptions from the NEHGS Collections
* Great Migration Begins: Immigrants to New England 1620-1633
* Abstracts of Wills in NY State 1787-1835
* Social Security Death Index, 1965-2010 (includes birth dates.)
* New England Ancestors magazine
* Missing Friends: Irish Immigrant Advertisments, 1831-1920
* Index of Revolutionary War Pensioners

Just below The Daily Genealogist feature is David Allen Lambert's "Question of the Day" feature where David answers a question about genealogical research and resources:
Over on the right-hand side of the Home Page is a box showing the latest article on the "NEHGS on Facebook" page at www.Facebook.com/NEHGS. I wrote about the opportunity to ask research questions, and receive answers form NEHGS staff or other researchers, on the NEHGS Facebook page in NEHGS Using Facebook Page as a Message Board.
There are many more pages to explore on the www.AmericanAncestors.org web site, and I look forward to doing that in future posts here on Genea-Musings. I am especially interested in the search capability, the image viewer, faster navigation and the unique content mentioned in the press release.
